Man theres ALOT of pearch in Green

8 posts in this topic

Went out and tried, without luck to catch some fish on Green. I know its a big lake with tons of structure but my cousin and I Poped around to different spots and all we saw was Pearch about 4-6" long we fished in 20 to 40 foot spots but didnt see anything else. We had a camera and no wonder why other fish arent hungry. Any other pointers. Wouldent Walleye or Northern move into these areas near prime time to feed? The bad thing is talking heads here are more tight lipped than the Walleye whistle.gif I'll find some eventully. Keep on poppin.

I've been seeing thirty to forty walleyes a night on my camera and its a good night to catch one or two of them crazy.gif I've tried everything possible but they want nothing to do with it. I figured with the warmer weather that they would be snappin but that wasnt the case. So who knows??? But if you wanna see fish, try and find the deepest weedlines ya can.

I have seen more walleyes than bass some days with the underwater camera. Eyehead nailed it. They are usually in the weeds!

A few times when we go out lakeviewing looking for bass on screen than camera we have been impressed with the walleye numbers.

This is in summer putting the cameras down when we would spot fish on screen.

Like one guy said after we dropshotted for bass one July day[Green Lake would be a great bass lake if you could keep walleye off line]

BlackJack, I use the Aqua-Vu Scout SRT. I rarely use it after dark unless im fishing crappies, but i'd say you can see around 15ft after dark give or take a couple feet. I've never caught a walleye after dark with it down so I usually pull it up around sunset.

With the Aqua view scout, how do you handle the direction of the camera?

The two biggest issues that I've seen with cameras is the snowstorm affect after dark and the lack of ability to control the camera.

With the Scout SRT, there is no snowstorm effect. Its as clear a picture during the day as it is at night. When I bought it they had a deal where you got there Ice Pod with it and that helps to position the camera pretty good. I think there like $15 or something like that.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
